Small Intensely Fluorescent Cells in Culture : Role of Glucocorticoids and Growth Factors in Their Development and lnterconversions with other Neural Crest Derivatives 1


The neural crest gives rise to a number of adrenergic derivatives, including sympathetic neurons and adrenal chromaffin cells, which contain catecholamines (CAs) but differ in other morphological and functional characteristics. Small intensely fluorescent (SIF) cells, which exist primarily as a minority cell population in autonomic ganglia, are a third cell… (More)
